Take time to wander round our internationally renowned Walled Garden. Largely designed by Sir James Burnett and his wife Sybil in the early 20th century, it’s divided into eight individual sections. With pools, fountains, themed borders, roses and many unusual plants, it’s inspirational at any time of year. For a kaleidoscope of colour it’s worth coming in summer to see the herbaceous borders at their blooming best. Don’t miss the ancient yew topiary and hedges – some of them were planted as early as 1702.

Two of our nationally significant garden collections include extremely rare conifers and the Malmaison carnation.
